Creemos que tienes #RightToKnow, derecho a saber qué contienen los productos que usas en tu hogar y en tu cuerpo.

Por ello colaboramos con marcas, socios y organizaciones con ideas afines para luchar por la transparencia a la hora de especificar los ingredientes en el sector de los productos de limpieza entre otros. Las fórmulas secretas son cosa del pasado. Ahora es el momento de mirar hacia el futuro y de librarnos de los tóxicos. #ComeClean.

Glosario de términos

A veces un aceite vegetal se modifica mínimamente con carbono de otras fuentes para mejorar su rendimiento. Cuando el carbono del aceite vegetal modificado proviene en su mayor parte (más del 50%) de la planta, Seventh Generation se refiere al ingrediente como "a base de plantas". El carbono restante puede ser derivado de fuentes provenientes del petróleo.

Algunos ingredientes obtienen su carbono exclusivamente de plantas, pero han sido modificados de su estado original en la naturaleza para ofrecer un rendimiento funcional. Seventh Generation se refiere a este tipo de ingredientes como "derivados de plantas".

Muchos ingredientes presentes en la naturaleza son minerales. Si un mineral ha sido procesado para formar un ingrediente aparece como "a base de minerales" en nuestras etiquetas.

Cuando la mayor parte (50 % o más) del carbono de un ingrediente proviene de fuentes distintas a una planta, Seventh Generation lo identifica como "sintético modificado con plantas".

Algunas de nuestras fórmulas requieren usar un conservante o sistema de conservación para ayudar a evitar el crecimiento de microorganismos que podrían deteriorar los productos. Por el momento aún no hemos encontrado ningún sistema de conservación derivado de plantas que sea efectivo y compatible con nuestros productos. Por este motivo, confiamos en que nuestro conservante sintético es la mejor opción de la que disponemos actualmente. Sin embargo, nos seguimos esforzando por encontrar un sistema de conservación íntegramente derivado de plantas.

Finalmente, si el carbono de un ingrediente proviene exclusivamente del petróleo o el gas natural, el ingrediente se denomina "sintético".
